Ron Jefferson, the sensitive jazz drummer, was something of a paradox: a jazzman who, for several years, labored just below the level of general public recognition in the East, only to find, as a founding member of pianist Les McCanns successful trio, an enthusiastic audience and wholehearted Ow!
- Tricky Lofton* & Carmell Jones With The Arrangements Of Gerald Wilson - Brass Bag of his talents on the West Coast jazz scene. And with his album Love Lifted Me he also shone as the fine leader of a persuasively swinging and remarkably consistent quintet in which Bobby Hutcherson plays with a joie de vivre Ow! - Tricky Lofton* & Carmell Jones With The Arrangements Of Gerald Wilson - Brass Bag harks back to a young Milt Jackson.
Aside from the driving lines of Wilbur Browns tenor, the most provocative soloist is Tricky Lofton, whose blithe, lusty trombone is a refreshing updating of the earthy style of an earlier jazz day. Tricky is also co-leader, with trumpeter Carmell Jones, of the second album here, Brass Bag, on half of which he features with some fullbodied, four-trombone ensemble support, and in the other half shares solos with Lou Blackburn.
Jones adds his consistent and lyrical solo voice, and Frank Strazzeris piano contributions are bright and lively, while Gerald Wilsons deft arrangements make effective use of the trombone choirs rich, dark ensemble sound. The spirited Lofton and Hutcherson take solo honors on the hard bop set. Brass Bag, a date that Lofton Arvores Do Alentejo - Teresa Silva Carvalho - Teresa Silva Carvalho with trumpeter Carmell Jones, is unusual in that five of the eight numbers feature Jones with five trombones and a rhythm section; Gerald Wilson provided the arrangements.
The remaining three Ras Michael And The Sons Of Negus* / Dadawah - Peace & Love / Nyahbinghi have the same group with just Lofton and Lou Blackburn as the trombonists.
Throughout the two dates, Tricky Lofton plays so well that one wonders why he did not become much better known. Add to cart. Add to wishlist.
